today you're nineteen

today you're nineteen,
oh what joy! and tomorrow--
what's a decade more? don't forget
Timket! cover your head!
dip, drench, and drown one
at the river's edge.
pledge to forget some;
not those that matter, son!
still, do remember
to remember
our distinctive lore.

today you're nineteen
